Coffee Love

Happy Tuesday everyone! Today I have a layout to share that I made for the Hip Kit Club Design Team tryouts. 

This layout is all about the amazing organic coffee my boyfriend and I stumbled upon while stuck it a hail storm up in Flagstaff. I used the Shimelle True Stories collection because there are so many cute coffee elements, and of course I tried to use them all (but only used three).

I started by matting a plain piece of white cardstock onto the Cinnamon Roll paper. Then took two Heidi Swapp Mists in Butter and Coral and sprayed close up where my photo and layers were going to go. In my layers I used a 6x6 card, a photo overlay that I cut in half, a scalloped border punch, and a manufacturers strip with little coffee cups on it. Then went in with a few embellishments from the collection. 

I also sprayed the two mists in the bottom right corner to bring in the extra colors from the main cluster. The coffee cup here was fussy cut from the Mocha paper and placed right against the edge of my paper. Then I used the left over piece of the manufacturers strip and a wood brad. 

For the title I used the tile alphas that came in the Phrase and Alphabet pack. The giant LOVE letters were cut from the Salted Caramel paper, and slightly layered on top of each other. Then underneath, I took a sticker from the same sheet and cut little fishtails on the ends and used a punch to cut a few more chevrons to place next to it. 

Thanks for stopping by to take a look! Have a great day!
